Eric Dane Checks Out Of Seattle Grace, Also the Rain Forest From “Lost”August 2nd, 2012 | Posted by in Scoops | Television
I have tragic news for the five of you out there who still watch Grey’s Anatomy: Eric Dane, who plays Mark Sloan/”McSteamy”, will be leaving Grey’s Anatomy this season.
Considering that the story lines at Seattle Grace have become as believable as Kim K’s marriage to that pseudo-famous neanderthal, I’d say Dane’s swift exit was finely timed. The second your hospital drama adopts the story line of Lost, perhaps it’s time to shut things down. I’m talking to you, Shonda Rhimes. For future reference, plot twists such as nuclear bombs, alien invasions, warthog stampedes, and tsunamis are not proper solutions to decreased viewership. Make your show suck less, and stop stabbing people with icicles and sh*t.
Eric Dane’s departure could set a dangerous/awesome example for the rest of the lead characters to GTFO before things get really ugly, like a musical episode or something…Oh wait, that already happened? Someone stop them. Pitch meetings are probably like a T-ball game, where everyone’s a winner! You have an idea? It’s in!
Hopefully, Meredith will get her whiny ass out next, which would be a win for all. Perhaps, then, Grey’s would improve without Ellen Pompeo’s squinty grasshopper face clogging up the screen and muddling the social hierarchy by having her dating an Adonis. (It would never happen, it’s science.)
